The purpose of this clinical investigation is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the CONTAK® RENEWAL™ 2/4/4HE cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) family and EASYTRAK® 2 lead in delivering LV-CRT or BiV-CRT with an LV Offset for patients with heart failure and an indication for an ICD.

Study summary:

This clinical investigation is a prospective, multi-center, randomized, double-blind study design enrolling 360 patients at 57 centers to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the therapy, the CONTAK RENEWAL 2/4/4HE devices and the EASYTRAK 2 lead.
